What do you enjoy most about nursing assistant work? What do you dislike the most? Is it challenging? Are there many opportunities to learn and advance?

What keeps you at your job?

I enjoy most helping elderly people to maintain or assist with their daily living routines. I enjoy their "Thank You" when I have taken care of a needed task for them. I enjoy hearing their words of wisdom and advice on situations.

I dislike most the short staff, when staffing is unable to staff the proper patient/nurse asst ratio...and then say it's okay for one CNA to have 24 patients or more. I can't for the life of me see how this is ever okay. This is not fair to the patientss nor the assistants.

In the nursing home I work, there is zero to zero opportunities to advance.

The spirit and love of the patients, definitely not the low pay and hard work.
